Language of instruction Italian.
Contents Diagnostic process in the path by the expression of static instability, determination of the disturbing causes that led to these failures.
Reference texts Mastrodicasa Sisto - Dissesti statici delle strutture edilizie – Ed. Hoepli
Teaching material and specific references provided by the teacher.
Educational objectives To provide the tools needed to trace the causes that have a certain damage in building structures, through a diagnostic procedure. Evaluate possible intervention strategies.
Prerequisites Basic knowledge of dynamics of structures, Mechanical Testing of Materials and monitoring with particular reference to the characterisation of masonry, are required.
Teaching methods Lessons in classroom and educational visits on site for cases of study.
Learning verification modality Oral exam lasting 30-45 minutes, concerning the topics covered in the lessons.
Extended program Diagnostic process in the path by the expression of static instability, determination of the disturbing causes that led to these failures. Key events of static and dynamic instability: foundation failure, crushing, flexion, pushing and seismic action, depression of horizontal structures. Engineering approach to the study of damaged masonry. The importance of types of masonry in the seismic behavior of buildings.

Contents Defining characteristics of the material wall. Diagnostic process in the path by the expression of static instability, determination of the disturbing causes that led to these failures.The importance of types of masonry in the seismic behavior of buildings. The diagnostic process as a series of investigations leading to the formulation of a diagnosis: history, physical examination, investigations with instruments.

Learning verification modality The assessment of Structural Diagnostic module requires a written exams lasting two hours on topics of diagnosis and therapy of the upheavals of the structures.
Extended program Diagnostic process in the path by the expression of static instability, determination of the disturbing causes that led to these failures. Key events of static and dynamic instability: foundation failure, crushing, flexion, pushing and seismic action, depression of horizontal structures. Engineering approach to the study of damaged masonry. Monitoring progression of cracking and deformation techniques with traditional and contemporary methods.
The importance of types of masonry in the seismic behavior of buildings. Methods of assessing the quality of mansory walls, estimate levels of knowledge and confidence factors for masonry. Consolidation and repair of building and monuments. Analysis of instability: case studies.
